The Cambridgeshire Guided Busway linking St Ives, Cambridge and Trumpington opened on 7 August 2011. This blog is now closed to new posts and comments. It was set up for people who travelled the busway, either as bus passengers, or users of the cycle/footpath such as pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders.
The blog remains visible as a historic record. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the blog over the past decade.

Busway cycle track still flooded - 2 February
Although the water level has gone down by about half a metre between St Ives and Fen Drayton Lakes, there are still several long stretches under water. Most people seem to be walking or pushing their bikes along the top of the embankment, but I saw one person cycling through the water east of the Ouse Viaduct.
Holywell Ferry Road is under water, so residents of Fen Drayton cannot easily get to their bus stop.

Between Fen Drayton and Swavesey, the track is still under water. The water is draining away very, very slowly, via the culverts that pass under the busway.
